As was the case with the other two books in this series, The Death Cure raises more questions than it answers. I was left scratching my head, wondering if the author deliberately left the ending ambiguous in order to open the door for either a fourth book or a spin-off series, or if he wanted to leave us feeling frustrated and filled with questions. I wasn’t expecting a happily-ever-after ending, but it would have been nice to have some closure.
